I don’t know about you, but every time I have used Super Glue, it never really sticks or delivers on its promise. But I have a word of comfort for you today about a bonding agent that actually does deliver on its promise.
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loves us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
In spite of the fact that we have been promised trials and troubles on every front in our personal and professional lives, we have this Supernatural Super Glue promise from our Savior, Jesus Christ. Nothing can separate us from the One who loved us and gave Himself for us!
If you meditate on this promise for even a moment, you will find yourself swimming in a sea of unimaginable comfort. Your sin cannot separate you from your Savior. Your adversary Satan cannot separate you from your Savior. Your own strongholds cannot separate you from your Savior. If you have placed your trust in Jesus Christ, nothing you have done or will do is able to separate you from the love of God! When connected to the Word of God, “nothing” really means NOTHING!
Now, notice that Scripture does not say we will be protected from the struggles and challenges of life. What it does promise is that we will be protected in them. In my work as a pastor, I counsel with far too many people who believe God is angry with them because they are currently facing some of the storm winds of life. That is simply not true! I have noted here on more than one occasion that Jesus promised us that we will all be confronted with storms. Just a cursory glance through the New Testament will reveal the many difficulties that even the most faithful followers of Jesus faced. Yet God’s promise is sure: nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
That truth should empower us to advance confidently in the direction our God is calling us to go. If nothing can separate us from our Savior, what have we to fear? We need only to fix our eyes upon Jesus, knowing that we are held firmly in His nail-scarred hands.
Remember, regardless of the circumstances you are facing today, Jesus always gets the last word! “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” He assures us, “the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 22:13). And His last word over your life is VICTORY, because He has made you more than a conqueror.
Peter knew this truth after he denied Jesus three times. He was convinced that he had blown it, but he learned the truth of this Supernatural Super Glue promise just a few days later: nothing—not even calling down curses on himself and denying Jesus three times—could separate him from his Savior and Lord.
Do you know this truth today? Are you living it out in every area of life? If not, what’s stopping you? When God makes a promise you can take it to the believer’s bank and rest assured that your check will be cashed for the full amount. You have His Word on it!
This is the Gospel. This is grace for your race. NEVER FORGET THAT . . . AMEN!
